A number of the men's swimmers were involved in a racially ugly public "entertainment" episode a couple years back that certainly put them on very thin ice with the whole community. Any subsequent tastelessness, put in writing as this was, is unbelievably stupid, or simply intended to be provocative, which may be worse.

Rob Orr has coached admirably for 38 years, and we need to find out why his current charges think they can be lousy citizens, at the very least. Rob and his women's counterpart, Susan Teeter (who just announced her resignation after 33 years -- ??) have always had exemplary cooperation, resulting in a pile of championships for each, and this all seems to make no sense whatever.

If there's fire here, I'd expect Eisgruber and Marcoux to act decisively -- you only want to go through this once.

Meanwhile, any Princeton alum who writes this off as frivolous is an idiot, and I suspect very few will.

Well said and I couldn't agree more. This is very dumb and disappointing behavior by these Tiger athletes and kudos to the University officers who are standing up for the Princeton community's values. This kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable if you are going to represent the school and wear its colors.
